F.A.R.M.S. is a regional nonprofit that provides legal and technical services to small farmers in the Southeast while alleviating hunger in the farmers community. One of F.A.R.M.S. most successful program is the F.A.R.M.S to Food Bank program which purchases produce from small farmers to be donated to regional food banks, pantries, child care center and shelters in high poverty communities in the Southeast. The Metro Atlanta Taskforce for the Homeless is F.A.R.M.S. newest program partner in Atlanta.
Ms. Jillian Hishaw, Esq. F.A.R.M.S., Founder, Director and Agricultural Attorney states, “Over the past few years we have purchased and donated nearly 100,000 lbs. of fresh produce to various entities in North and South Georgia. F.A.R.M.S. donation has generated over 78,000 meal servings which has been impactful to shelters and child care centers who don’t receive much assistance during the Summer. Due to minimal funding, this year the Black Restaurant Week’s donation is most timely in helping F.A.R.M.S. continue F.A.R.M.S. efforts into the Fall."
Over the past four years, F.A.R.M.S. to Food Bank program has donated over 200,000 lbs. of fresh produce generating up to 600,000 servings which is equivalent to 240,000 meals in seven different states. Past and present funder's include Farm Aid, USDA, Clif Bar Family Foundation and more. We are happy to add Atlanta Black Restaurant Week to the list of fiscal sponsors.
